Google+ Debuts in App Store [Updated]

by

google plus app
As noted by MacStories, the new Google+ app offering users a number of features related to the company's new social networking service has just gone live in the App Store.

Google+ for mobile makes sharing the right things with the right people a lot simpler. Huddle lets you send super-fast messages to the people you care about most. And no matter where you are, the stream lets you stay in the loop about what your friends are sharing and where they’re checking in.

Features:
* Circles let you share the right things with just the right people.
* Stream is where you can get updates from your circles or see what people are saying about things nearby.
* Huddle is super-fast group messaging for everyone in your circles.

Google+ is a free app designed for the iPhone. Google prefers that iPad users directly access Google+ via the web app available at google.com/+.

Update: Just two hours after its initial release, the Google+ app has already been updated, so those users who grabbed an early copy may want to make sure they check for updates to make sure they have the current version.

What's New in Version 1.0.1.1809

- Better support for blocking unwanted messages in Huddle
- Better support for attaching photos to a post
- Various bug fixes and performance improvements

Why are you using beta firmware and complaining about compatibility? Seems absurd to do so.

What? Not for iPad? I was looking forward to getting it on my iPad, because the web app sucks, both the mobile and desktop version. Why? Because not all features works correctly on the desktop version on iPad. And the mobile version... well, it's the mobile version. iPad is no mobile. It is mobile, but more a laptop than a phone/iPod.

Wow! Growing quite fast. I remember hearing a few days or a week ago that in it's first 2 weeks Google+ reached 10M users. Pretty good for invite only.


I think people have been aching for a viable Facebook alternative for a while now.

Does anyone even have Google+ yet? All I see are the reporters and tech bloggers having it. But no one I know has it yet.

And when listening to tech podcasts, they're all under the assumption that EVERYONE has it and have gone on to talk about tips and tricks and how people use it...when it still just seems to be some exclusive club of a few high-profile people.

It sounds great, but I'm sick of everyone in the tech-news world talking about it when it seems they're the only ones that have it.

Most MR members who want an invite have one now :)


What exactly is 2 factor authentication?

Its an extra security feature for Gmail and other Google products.
